About the Attractions

Shanghai Huangpu River Night Cruise

The Huangpu River is the mother river of Shanghai. Nanpu Bridge, Yangpu Bridge and Oriental Pearl TV Tower compose of a huge picture scroll. The Bund is the cultural section of Shanghai that best represents the blending of ancient and modern influences. This renowned waterfront district is the city’s most famous landmark. Local people honor the Huangpu River as Mother River, and as you view the lights and spectacle from the deck of your evening cruise, you will understand why. 

City God Temple

Chenghuangmiao (City God Temple), located in an eponymous tourist-centric zone, is Shanghai’s most important Taoist temple. It has stood there for nearly six centuries since it was built in Ming dynasty’s Yongle period (1403-1424). Numerous halls are spread out in an area of about 2,000 square meters.

Tianzifang

Tianzifang is a tourist shopping and cafe area in the Old French Quarter, with hundreds of bars, cafes, crafts shops, design studios, art galleries and boutiques. The area retains an “organic and original” feel because the area hasn’t been markedly reconstructed in recent years. Instead you’ll see buildings, alleys and streets of the old French Quarter with later Chinese additions piled on.

In an effort to stave off redevelopment, in the middle of the last decade, artists, business owners, and residents in the area banded together and preserved the original architecture. Though it is still a Chinese residential area, it has become famous as a “rabbit warren” of arts and crafts shops, and less-expensive restaurants, bars, and cafes. Thousands of Chinese still live in the apartments above the shops.
